Kontron is announcing its integrated IoT-ready hardware and software platform and the addition of the first security and real-time analytics systems incorporating its growing IoT partner ecosystem.

The new Kontron IoT security offering includes high levels of encryption across every layer of the network. In addition, real-time analytics software is deployed for alerting users to any potentially suspect or unauthorised devices attempting access or being connected to the network. In order to implement a comprehensive end-to-end IoT security capability, Kontron is forming partnerships on a global basis with a number of hardware, software and communications security providers. These partnerships will complement Kontron’s middleware architecture with major IoT technology providers and ensure out-of-the-box product compatibility.

Rolf Schwirz, Kontron’s CEO says: “With Kontron’s new IoT ready and deeply integrated middleware software stacks on all our products, we fulfil our vision of being the most trusted embedded computer technology partner. The partnerships with Wibu and SQLstream reinforce and complement our end-to-end IoT solution and together we can ensure security and remove complexity for our customers in this new exciting and technologically challenging IoT world.”

By expanding the partner ecosystem, Kontron will be able to quickly develop different functionality modules and continually enhance the usability of its IoT offering. Today’s partnership announcements with Wibu for security, and SQLstream for analytics, are in line with this strategy which will also see the addition of device management and all other components required in different IoT user environments and applications.
